Horse Racing | Cameron Handicap Day

Cameron Handicap Day is part of the highly anticipated Newcastle Jockey Club’s Spring Carnival and definitely one to mark down on the racing calendar. Held at Newcastle Racecourse during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, it features the Group 3 Cameron Handicap and the Group 3 Spring Stakes.

This midweek raceday always attracts true equine enthusiasts from across the Hunter region, Sydney and even interstate visitors. But it is not just a day for horse racing fans. With the Ladies Marquee and the NJC’s Fashions on the Field, socialites tend to flock towards Newcastle on the second Wednesday in September. The two main events boast $300,000 in prize money between them, with handy three-year-olds and open class horses catered for.
